SOS Liverpool Plains NSW sign now

The Petition of supporters of the SOS Liverpool Plains Inc brings to the attention of the House our serious concerns with the NSW Governments refusal to put the interests of residents and the environment affected by coal mining and coal seam gas extraction. In the era of climate change, we must ensure mining does not destroy our environment, agricultural production, peoples livelihoods, health and attachment to the land.

The undersigned petitioners therefore ask the Legislative Assembly to:

1. Amend the Mining Act 1992 and the Petroleum (onshore) Act 1991 to exclude all mining activities within 1 km from a watercourse.
2. Recognise the significant contribution of the Liverpool Plains to food production in New South Wales by cancelling all mining and gas exploration licences on this prime agricultural land and quarantining it from any future mining.
3. Immediately implement a mandatory requirement for coal trains to cover their load and for all coal mines to monitor dust emissions to PM2.5 with non-compliance and excessive emissions resulting in significant fines and shut down in production.

* Coal dust has been shown to cause or exacerbate a wide range of illnesses and to contaminate tank water with heavy metals and other toxic substances
